Project Ambition

The MycoSynVac project aims at using cutting-edge synthetic biology methodologies to engineer Mycoplasma pneumoniae as a universal chassis for vaccination.


  • MycoSynVac 1st Annual Meeting took place in Bordeaux on October 18th and 19th 2016
  • Tools for genome engineering course. The course will be hosted in 2018 at INRA, Bordeaux. More information coming soon. Stay tuned!
  • Current production processes of vaccines based on mycoplasma are very irreproducible and prone to contamination by animal viruses.
  • Infection caused by Mycoplasma species on livestock result in multi-million losses in Europe and USA
  • Dr Carmen DE VICENTE COLL Research Programme Officer, European Commission
  • Whole-Cell Modeling Course The goal of the 2017 Whole-Cell Modeling Course is to provide young investigators cutting-edge training in large-scale dynamical modeling and model integration.
  • 2nd Review Meeting took place on 17th May 2017 in Brussels
  • Disease & Impact
  • Vaccine Symposium in Nijmegen November 15th 2017 from 9:00am to 5pm
  • 2017 Science Cafés in Austria and UK
